I’m A Celebrity fans are convinced the show is a fix following Rita Simons’ unexpected exit.
The former Eastenders actress became the fourth person to be voted off the show this year after losing the public vote last night.
But plenty of people have started pointing out something strange following her departure.
Rita has been booked into a panto over in the UK for quite some time which starts this weekend – but I’m A Celebrity doesn’t finish up until next Monday.

It’s reported that Jennifer Ellison will be standing in for Rita until she returns, which would explain away any suspicion that she might have known she was leaving early, but that’s not the only reason people have been calling it a fix.
As well as that, Rita expressed her excitement at seeing her family soon despite the fact that her exit was not announced to her until later in the show.
She said, “It’s so tangible that I’m about to see my family. My barriers have come down a bit and I just miss them all massively.”
Her uncle Lord Alan Sugar then later tweeted to claim that it was his fault she was voted off the show after people discovered they were in fact related.
He wrote, ‘That is maybe why the public voted her out. It might be my fault.’
